IPEndPoint.AddressFamily Property

Gets the Internet Protocol (IP) address family.

Namespace:  System.Net
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

Public Overrides ReadOnly Property AddressFamily As AddressFamily
Dim instance As IPEndPoint 
Dim value As AddressFamily 

value = instance.AddressFamily

The following example uses the AddressFamily property to return the AddressFamily to which the IPEndPoint belongs. In this case it is the InterNetwork AddressFamily.

Private Shared Sub displayEndpointInfo(ByVal endpoint As IPEndPoint)
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint Address : " + endpoint.Address.ToString())
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint AddressFamily : " + endpoint.AddressFamily.ToString())
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint Port : " + endpoint.Port.ToString())
  Console.WriteLine("Endpoint ToString() : " + endpoint.ToString())

  Console.WriteLine("Press any key to continue.")
End Sub 'displayEndpointInfo
void displayEndpointInfo(IPEndPoint* endpoint)
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint->Address : {0}", endpoint->Address);
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint->AddressFamily : {0}", __box(endpoint->AddressFamily));
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint->Port : {0}", __box(endpoint->Port));
   Console::WriteLine(S"Endpoint.ToString() : {0}", endpoint);

   Console::WriteLine(S"Press any key to continue.");
